Applications for compensation for sexual harassment at work are made to the London Employment Tribunal which can award compensation. Just one serious instance of this behaviour may be enough to justify an award of compensation by the Employment Tribunal which can award an amount for aggravated damages if the behaviour has been particularly offensive. There is no limit to the amount of compensation that can be awarded in the London Employment Tribunaland there is no minimum period of employment necessary to qualify for an award.
